The "Put a Price on It DC" campaign is a multi-sector coalition of more than local 20 organizations coordinated by Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN). The coalition is working together in a framework of shared principles on social justice, economic and scientific integrity, and political durability. The target policy design is a carbon fee and rebate, with options of additional revenue uses under exploration. Professional facilitators from Active Neutrals are guiding a transparent, equitable, efficient and inclusive policy design and coalition building process.
